But first to arms, to armour.

Um. So yeah, I think this applies to Mycroft. And maybe Diogenes!Sherlock in the hippieverse.

That and I'm trying to forget about the dental implant tomorrow.


First fight. Then fiddle. Ply the slipping string
With feathery sorcery; muzzle the note
With hurting love; the music that they wrote
Bewitch, bewilder. Qualify to sing
Threadwise. Devise no salt, no hempen thing
For the dear instrument to bear. Devote
The bow to silks and honey. Be remote
A while from malice and from murdering.
But first to arms, to armour. Carry hate
In front of you and harmony behind.
Be deaf to music and to beauty blind.
Win war. Rise bloody, maybe not too late
For having first to civilize a space
Wherein to play your violin with grace.

—Gwendolyn Brooks, "First fight. Then fiddle."

Also, random quote from The Guy:
"You wish you were a hobbit. They have cool hairy feet and they smoke a lot of weed."
